What you want to acquire, you should dare to acquire by any means. What you want to see, even though it is with difficulty, you should see.

They like to tell us that it is important to speak the truth, but it has been my experience that real happiness lies in having people tell you what you want to believe, usually not the same thing at all, and if you have to stub your toe on the truth later, so be it.
Jeff Lindsay
You should try to get what you want in life and try not to be limited.
Lisa Loeb

Mark Thomas
You don’t want to be starting a film not knowing what you want to do.

I think you have to know exactly what you want. Whether you want to be a guitar player or a musician, you have to be really focused on it if you really want to do it.
Jonny Lang
You guys will write what you want to write, people will say what they want to say. I can’t control any of that. All I can control is how I play. I’m trying to be the best player I can be.
Jason Spezza
Begin doing what you want to do now.
Marie Beynon Lyons Ray
Once you accept that playing the game will be uncomfortable, and you do it for a while, it will become much easier (like it does when getting fit). When you excel at it, you will find your ability to get what you want thrilling.
Ray Dalio
Formerly, when I would feel a desire to understand someone, or myself, I would take into consideration not actions, in which everything is relative, but wishes. Tell me what you want and I’ll tell you who you are.
Anton Chekhov
Whether it’s physically having a visual of what you want to accomplish in front of you, like a running list or a vision board, or mentally visualizing and taking time to meditate, having a vision of what you are running for keeps you from running for the sake of running.
Ian Somerhalder
Grab whom you must. Do what you want.
Seymour Hersh
Just wear what you want, if you like something that’s all that matters. Dress for yourself not for other people.

Focused will is incredible. If you have a dream and you don’t give up no matter what obstacles come up, then life’s problems will fall away and you will get what you want. It happens. It works.
Yanni
You see the lighted windows and what you want to think is that there may be many interesting stories behind them, but what you know is that really there are just dull, dull souls, mere consumers of food, who think their instincts are emotions and their tiny lives of more account than a whisper of wind.
Terry Pratchett
Learning what you don’t want to do is the next best thing to figuring out what you want to do.
Anderson Cooper
Decide what you want, decide what you are willing to exchange for it. Establish your priorities and go to work.
H. L. Hunt
If you’re frustrated because you’re not getting what you want, stop for a second: Have you actually flat-out asked for it? If you haven’t, stop complaining. You can’t expect the world to read your mind. You have to put it out there, and sometimes putting it out there is as simple as just saying, “Hey, can I have that?
Sophia Amoruso
Explain to people that everything they say is an affirmation. Everything they think is an affirmation. Everything! What you want to do is to get control of what you are saying and thinking, so these things bring you good experiences in life rather than rotten experiences.
Louise Hay
Its easy to lose sight of what you want when you think you want everything.

I change lyrics to the songs all the time, too. I don’t know if it matters in a lot of ways because you can take what you want from it.
Matt Corby
Love doesn’t mean anything if you’re not willing to make a commitment, and you have to think not only about what you want, but about what he wants. Not just now, but in the future.
Nicholas Sparks
You can learn a lot from children because they see things new every day. That’s the beauty of what you want to achieve as an artist – seeing things in a different way. Kids are constantly saying things that are funny and surprising and their observations are just… you know, they’re like little artists themselves.
Tim Burton
There is no authentic goal you can set for yourself that can’t be reached, no dream that can’t be realized. It’s just a matter of learning HOW to achieve what you want.

And Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values, like you work hard for what you want in life. That your word is your bond; that you do what you say you’re going to do. That you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don’t know them and even if you don’t agree with them.
Michelle Obama
The whole point of doing the pay what you want is to be reasonable with the fans.

If you see a theme that you might want to take a photo of, you sort of stand there for an hour waiting for it to resolve, waiting for the geometry of a theme to be exactly what you want them to be. That was my process to get photos.
Teju Cole
I believe in goals. It’s never a bad thing to have a dream. If something is really what you want to do, just do it. Whatever your goal.

Be intentional about your life and what you want to accomplish, but understand there’s no choice you make that you can’t change.
Gloria Feldt
As a director, you have to go in with a really, really, really clear picture of what you want. That’s the point of my commentaries. It’s so difficult because you’re the harshest critic.
David Slade
The most effective way I know to begin with the end in mind is to develop a personal mission statement or philosophy or creed. It focused on what you want to be (character) and to do (contributions and achievements) and on the values or principles upon which being and doing are based.
Stephen Covey
How do I define success? Let me tell you, money’s pretty nice. But having a lot of money does not automatically make you a successful person. What you want is money and meaning. You want your work to be meaningful, because meaning is what brings the real richness to your life.
Oprah Winfrey
If you don’t try things and take risks, you don’t really grow and figure out what you want.
Zendaya
You can’t have what you want to have, without doing what you need to do.
Jim Connolly
Concentrate on what you want to say to yourself and your friends. Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness. You say what you want to say when you don’t care who’s listening.
Allen Ginsberg
And by letting go of trying to control the uncontrollable…you ironically increase…the probability of getting what you want.
Michael Neill

Miguel Angel Ruiz
I believe you can make forces of good and evil work for you, to get what you want.
GG Allin
It’s not only imagination, it’s the distortion of the vision. You suddenly think, “This person is idealistic, this person is strong, this person has dreams”, when you know better most of the time. You put what you want to see on people.
Olivier Martinez
Raising your kids vegetarian is a great way to encourage them to do the opposite of what you want! But the goal is not to have them have the same values that I have. It’s to have them act on their values.
Jonathan Safran Foer
Thinking that what you want equals what’s best for you is a dead end.
Byron Katie
If you’re going somewhere East from here, generally what you want to do is you want to try to have your bed time earlier and earlier so what we’ll do is I’ll have someone adjust for a week or two by going to be 15 minutes earlier and getting up 15 minutes earlier every night. So that can be a really simple thing.
Shelby Harris
Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world. What you see reflects your thinking. And your thinking but reflects your choice of what you want to see. If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
Helen Schucman
I think the misconceptions, there are certain people that are fixed in those with those beliefs, and been in those for twenty-five years, you’re not going to change them…. What you’ve got to do is basically talk to the future about what you want to with the country.
William M. Daley
Be suspicious of what you want.
Rumi
Eat what you want to eat, but just be willing to pay the price. If you know you want to eat more cake or more cookies, be willing to work out a lil bit more. I think that’s the problem people have is you want to eat bad, but yet you don’t want to pay the price to work it off.
Herschel Walker
Nothing in the outer world makes you feel any way. You decide what you want to feel, and then use outer people and events as permission slips to execute your feeling agenda.
Alan Cohen
It’s not easy-living in a void, living and dying inside your head…wanting what you want so much that you’d give everything else to get it- but the time still passes, the days go on…and as long as there’s still a tomorrow, there’s always a chance.
Kevin Brooks
There are all kinds of writers and all kinds of methods, and any method that helps you to say what you want to say is the right method for you.
William Zinsser
I think what I represent is achieving what you want in life. It’s a matter of your attitude. Some people have a negative attitude, and that’s their disability.
Marla Runyan
Advertising ought to work by telling you what it is you want to tell, you should understand what you want us to do, what you want us to think, where you want us to shop.
Jay Chiat
Someone will always tell you what you want to hear.
Delia Ephron
We have to learn to love people even if they are not giving you what you want… and then not take it personally. If you feel hurt, you have to recognize that they are not hurting you because you are you, but because they are them. You have to try not to be so hard on yourself.
Krishna Das
Here is a guaranteed way to get more of what you want: want less.
Ashleigh Brilliant

Rod Steiger
Patience is a virtue. Keep doing what you want to do and eventually things will happen.
Arian Foster
The key is to figure out what you want out of life, not what you want out of your career.
Goldie Hawn
The way you have bipartisan negotiations, you sit down across the table, as we did with Ted Kennedy, as I’ve done with many other members, and you say, ‘OK, here’s what I want, here’s what you want. We’ll adhere to your principles, but we’ll make concessions.’
John McCain
The reason I am so popular is that I give others back what they need to find in themselves. You need me not because I tell you what I want you to do but because I articulate and justify what you want to do.
Azar Nafisi
If you do not get what you want, it is a sure sign that you did not seriously want it.
Rudyard Kipling
I think the most important thing to remember is that pain passes. And artistically, the pain is going to pass. It’s what you want to express out of the pain as opposed to indulging in the agony-and-pain mantra of songwriting that became such a hit in the ’90s and still, all the way up to now.
Alex Ebert
If you can’t do what you want, do what you can.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Focus groups are a waste of time, filled with people telling you what you want to hear so they can go home.
Sergio Zyman
Start doing what you want to do, and everything else will be revealed to you.
Paulo Coelho
A lot is gained through experience, but experience teaches some and not others. Effectiveness and excellence, whether or not they were attained by simply having the knack or through the school of hard knocks, is really what you want to reward.
Caterina Fake
But if one doesn’t have a character like Abraham Lincoln or Joan of Arc, a diet simply disintegrates into eating exactly what you want to eat, but with a bad conscience.
Maria Franziska von Trapp
The more you see yourself as what you’d like to become, and act as if what you want is already there, the more you’ll activate those dormant forces that will collaborate to transform your dream into your reality.
Wayne Dyer
The message of the summoned life is that you don’t need to panic if you don’t yet know what you want to do with your life. But you probably want to throw yourselves into circumstances where the summons will come.
David Brooks
If you want to do what you want to do, you have to look a certain way.
Jessica Cutler
Say what you want about America – thirteen bucks can still get you a hell of a lot of mice!
George Michael
Designing is a matter of concentration. You go deep into what you want to do. It’s about intensive research, really. The concentration is warm and intimate and like the fire inside the earth – intense but not distorted. You can go to a place, really feel it in your heart. It’s actually a beautiful feeling.
Peter Zumthor
Focus on being the best you can at what you want to do.
David Maister

Gordie Howe
There’s always a price for what you want.
Steve Perry

She’s saying that’s ok, Hey baby, do what you want I’ll be your night lovin’ thing I’ll be the freak you can taunt And I don’t care what you say I want to go too far I’ll be your everything If you make me a star… Dirty Diana
Michael Jackson
If you don’t have a plan for what you want, then you will probably find yourself buying into someone else’s plan and later find out that was not the direction you wanted to go. You’ve got to be the architect of your life.
Jim Rohn
You need to figure out what you want, Josh. If that means you need to swim against the tide to get it, at least youre aiming for something that could make you very happy.
Jay Asher
A home birth is about being able to create exactly what you want, because it’s such a violent moment inside of the body that you want everything else to be as beautiful as it can be.
Erykah Badu
Cats seem to go on the principle that it never does any harm to ask for what you want.
Joseph Wood Krutch
Everything is generated through your own will power. You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do. This is a democracy. You go where you want to go and do what you want to do.
Ray Bradbury
You can say what you like about long dresses, but they cover a multitude of shins.

Phil Keoghan
The law of attraction is this: You don’t attract what you want. You attract what you are.
Wayne Dyer
You are so tactful that I have no idea what you want.

David Emerald Womeldorff
You know what you like, you know what you want. So all you have to do is find something work related to that stuff

Pat Riley

Stephen Mallinder
Here in a nutshell is why Google continues to get hyped by everyone including me (notice who I work for). Google surprises [sic] you. Delights you. Gives you what you want (not always, but more often than the other engines).
Robert Scoble
Dream what you want! Start creating your own reality! Work hard for it and the rest will follow! Love and Blessings!
Logan Henderson
The love, support, and respect the members of the theater community have for one another is unparalleled. Say what you want about us wacky drama-types, but one thing that makes our business special is our loyalty, our fierce commitment to one another, and our mutual respect.
Monica Raymund
You can’t expect to draw people into your life who are kind, confident, and generous if you’re thinking and acting in cruel, weak, and selfish ways. You must be what it is that you’re seeking- that is, you need to put forth what you want to attract.
Wayne Dyer
The incremental approach to change is effective when what you want is more of what you’ve already got.
Richard Pascale
I think there are [gay players] right now, and if they’re looking for a window to just come out, I mean, now is the window. My view on it is, yes, I am a Christian, but to each his own. You do what you want to do.
Robert Griffin III
The prudent course is to make an investment in learning, testing and understanding, determine how the new concepts compare to how you now operate and thoughtfully determine how they apply to what you want to achieve in the future.
Dee Hock
I’ve never felt that way. I’ve never felt like a looser. You can’t get what you want if you feel like it’s you against the world. You’ll never get anywhere with negativity. I make my own opportunities I don’t feel like everything is against me.
Zacky Vengeance
One of the greatest things in life is that no one has the authority to tell you what you want to be. You’re the one who’ll decide what you want to be.
Jaime Escalante
Woo means the ability to entice someone or something to get what you want. My first solo album was called: All the Woo of the Universe, which was titled by George Clinton.
Bernie Worrell
No genuine choice is ever simply a matter of the arbitrary exercise of will. Take your choice of lunch today. You can’t decide to want anything, but what you want will at least in part be a result of a series of other choices and judgments you’ve made in your life to date.
Julian Baggini
I always say there are two things to be successful. The first is decide exactly what you want – set your goals – and then determine how you will achieve them (what skills you will have to learn, what actions will you have to take). And these are totally under your control. These are not dependent upon anyone else.
Brian Tracy
Every vampire fiction reinvents vampires to its own needs. You take what you want.
Joss Whedon
It’s not enough to have values without vision ; you want to be good, but you want to be good for something. On the other hand, vision without values can create a Hitler . An empowering mission statement deals with both character and competence; what you want to be and what you want to do in your life.
Stephen Covey
At this point of my life, I’m 32 and I feel sexier than ever because you know what you want.
Christina Aguilera
I had been told by a number of people that if you get half of what you want on your first album, you’re doing really well. Pretty much every single thing they had was something that I liked. There were maybe one or two songs I didn’t like, and they were taken off the album quickly.
Clay Aiken
At hotels, you are an actress. Absolutely. You can do what you want. Go where you want. I love my home too. But I love to arrive in a hotel. They have books, chocolate, food. I put things in the little refrigerator.
Sonia Rykiel
Perfectionism is simply putting a limit on your future. When you have an idea of perfect in your mind, you open the door to constantly comparing what you have now with what you want. That type of self criticism is significantly deterring.
John Eliot
If you carefully consider what you want to be said of you in the funeral experience, you will find your definition of success.
Stephen Covey
In art as in lovemaking, heartfelt ineptitude has its appeal and so does heartless skill, but what you want is passionate virtuosity.
John Barth

Pablo Picasso

Louise Bourgeois
When you are clear about what you want to learn, you will find your teacher. The teacher is already there. The two of you will meet because you are looking for each other.

You always absorb a lot from a great actor. What you want, as an actor, no matter where you are in your career, is a partner who’s going to bring everything they have to the scene.
Julianne Moore
Oh my God, you’re serious. Honey, I am a six time Women’s Champion, if you get into the ring with me it will not be for a Lingerie Pillow Fight, it will not be to shoot t-shirts. If you get into the ring with me I will end your career just like that. Are you sure that’s what you want?
Trish Stratus
Nobody can hinder you from doing what you want, if that’s what you set your mind to. You can always find a hook to hang excuses on, but they’re only excuses. You don’t have anyone to blame but yourself. Nobody else makes you fail.
Benjamin Carson
Now it is a funny thing about life. If you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it. If you utterly decline to make do with what you can get, then somehow or other, you are very likely to get what you want.
W. Somerset Maugham
Tough toenails, tiger. What you want and what you get are usually two entirely different things.
Nicholas Sparks
I embrace everybody, but you work everybody and each song at a time to who it is for. I believe that’s how you build a palace. You build a palace one block at a time and then you’ll have what you want. That’s how it goes.
B.J. The Chicago Kid
Saudi women like makeup. And I’m OK with that. If that’s what you want to make you feel good, go for it.

Wiz Khalifa
Decide what you want to be, do, and have, think the thoughts of it, emit the frequency, and your vision will become your life.

What you want, as an actor, is a great leader. I can’t bear it when I work with a director who is wishy-washy and says, “What did you think?”
Naomi Watts
My students frequently ask what their next project should be. My advice: immerse yourself in the music you love and you will find what you want to do; you will discover your next project.

Audrey Flack
That is the key of this collection, being yourself. Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way to live.
Gianni Versace
It’s [high school] an interesting time in your life because you’re trying to act older and mature but you really have no idea what you’re doing. You’re scared and it’s okay to be scared. It’s okay to not know completely what you want or what you should be doing and to stumble a little bit.
Milo Ventimiglia
Think about what there is to learn from your heritage, good and bad, and about what you want to cultivate and not cultivate.

Animals… don’t have a sense of time. You just have to do things over and over with animals until they happen to do it right because they don’t really know what you want.
Bruce Greenwood
Basically this is what you want - a high performance machine that idiots can run.

Some people don’t even notice. “Oh, you sound exactly like you did!” And I say, “OK, if that’s what you want to believe, that’s fine.”
Joan Baez

Stephen Curry
You get to choose what you want, but you must get clear about what you want.

Kellan Lutz
Desire is when you do what you want, will is when you can do what youВ do not want.
P.D. Ouspensky
The greatest joy comes from giving and serving, so replace your habit of focusing exclusively on yourself and what’s in it for you. When you make the shift to supporting others in your life, without expecting anything in return, you’ll think less about what you want and find comfort and joy in the act of giving and serving.
Wayne Dyer
If you want ACTION, don’t write. Go and tell the guy what you want.

Donald Trump said he will not decide about a possible run for the presidency until after the current season of Celebrity Apprentice wraps up. Say what you want about Trump, at least this guy has his priorities in order. He doesn’t want to let actual reality get in the way of his reality show.
Jay Leno
In a presidential campaign, you can’t lie. You can’t hide what you are and what you want. You can’t hide what kind of President you’ll be. You can’t keep on talking about nothing indefinitely and committing to nothing, you can’t keep running away from debate, masking the challenges.
Nicolas Sarkozy
If what you want to do is make artwork for bands, you have to love doing it because there is almost no money in it. In order to start doing it, you just have to put yourself out there, work for bands you love and for as little as possible to start, if not free, that’s what I did for years.
John Dyer Baizley
Create what you want as opposed to being stuck in what you didn’t have.
Iyanla Vanzant
Feminism seeks to turn the biggest, bloodiest carnivore in the world – passion – into a right-on cud-chewing vegan. It can never work. Sex was never meant to be that way. Sex, on the whole, was meant to be short, nasty and brutish. If what you want is cuddling, you should buy a puppy.
Julie Burchill
Well if you can’t get what you love, You learn to love the things you’ve got .. If you can’t be what you want, You learn to be the things you’re not .. If you can’t get what you need, You learn to need the things that stop you dreaming

Teenage life – possibly adult life too is all about what you want and can’t have. And then about what you receive and misuse.
Jonathan Lethem
As a scholar I am interested in the philosophy of language, semiotics, call it what you want, and one of the main features of the human language is the possibility of lying.
Umberto Eco
Joy is not the result of getting what you want; it is the way to get what you want. In the deepest sense, joy is what you want.
Alan Cohen
The creative act is like writing a letter. A letter is a project; you don’t sit down to write a letter unless you know what you want to say and to whom you want to say it.
Lukas Foss
Don’t listen to what anybody says except the people who encourage you. If it’s what you want to do and it’s within yourself, then keep going and try to do it for the rest of your life.
Jake Gyllenhaal
Always keep your foes confused. If they are never certain who you are or what you want, they cannot know what you are like to do next.
George R. R. Martin
According to today’s Los Angeles Times, Gray Davis now gets negative job ratings from white people, black people, Latinos, Republicans, Independents and even Democrats. Say what you want about the guy but he’s a uniter!
Jay Leno
Breaking up is a natural evolution when you try to figure out what you want in life. If you’re with an individual who isn’t moving in the same direction and at the same rate that you are, it ain’t going to work.
Usher
Practice makes the Master. You can reconcile what you are and what you want to be.
Miguel Angel Ruiz
Direction is a thousand choices, a thousand decisions a day. And having a vision of what you want, and then knowing what you want frame-by-frame, second-by-second… if you don’t have it laid out in the design and in the way the actor performs it, it’s not going to happen.
Sean Stone
I think when you first get a job, you’re just trying to do what the last regime did, just to keep it going, as opposed to actually doing what you want to do.
Michael Che
The secret to happiness, of course, is not getting what you want; it’s wanting what you get.
Alex Trebek
Life isn’t what you want it to be, it’s what you make it become.
Anthony Ryan
You have a pre-conceived notion of what you want the scene to be, but once you get there, that goes out the window and it turns out to be a way that you never imagined.
Shailene Woodley
People who decry the fact that businesses are in business “just to make money” seldom understand the implications of what they are saying. You make money by doing what other people want, not what you want.
Thomas Sowell
Sometimes being famous gets in the way of doing what you want to do.
Johnny Mathis
There are two reasons not to tell the truth–becuase lying will get you what you want, and because lying will keep someone from getting hurt.
Jodi Picoult
It’s never overreacting to ask for what you want and need.
Amy Poehler
Ask for 100% of what you want 100% of the time.
Stan Dale
The phrase ‘teen hottie’ literally makes me want to throw up. I’m a pop princess at heart. Pop is about distilling what you want to say and making it easy. And the way I write isn’t about making things easy. It’s a weird juxtaposition.
Lorde
If you feel strongly about someone, go up to them. Pursue what you want in life. Why be shy about something like that?
Yohji Yamamoto
Obviously you live life for yourself and have your choice to believe what you want to believe in, but I know that the Bible can be used to appreciate life.
Benjamin Clementine
Well, you can think what you want, so long as you remember – no matter how ordinary things seem between us – I’m still here, still in love with you, and care about you more than any other guy, evil or otherwise, ever will.
Richelle Mead
you have to realize that you don’t have someone else’s life and your never going to. You better start loving the one you got. Embrass the life you have and stop wishing that you could be someone else. Just stop all that and start saying “God here I am. Do what you want to do with me”.
Joyce Meyer
I promise you, if you reach that point where you are not afraid to figure out who you are, what you want and what your values are, you will not fear that anymore. You will not do it, you will be smarter.
Christi Paul
Be sure to have friends who demand more of you rather than tell you why you cannot do what you want to do.
Robert Kiyosaki
Instead of envying what others have, decide what YOU want out of life and focus on achieving it.
Beverly Engel
If you love a person, you say to that person, “Look, I love you, whatever that may be. I’ve seen quite a bit of it and I know there’s lots that I haven’t seen, but still it’s you and I want you to be what you want to be. And I won’t be happy if I’ve got you in a cage. You’d be a bird without song.”
Alan Watts
Switching from one career to another can be scary, but it also can be a thrilling experience. Look at it as an opportunity to really go after what you want to accomplish in life and make a difference in the world. The key is to take small, conscious steps and prepare yourself for a successful transition.
Jack Canfield
Sometimes you don’t even know what you want until you find out you can’t have it.
Meghan O’Rourke
Where there is a will, there is a way. If there is a chance in a million that you can do something, anything, to keep what you want from ending, do it. Pry the door open or, if need be, wedge your foot in that door and keep it open.
Pauline Kael
If you spend a lot of time thinking about your problems, they’ll grow bigger and stronger. Is that what you want? Of course not!Instead, focus on your goals. Start your day with them at the front of your mind, and use notes to recall them strategically throughout your day.
Les Brown
Nothing is as important as passion. No matter what you want to do with your life, be passionate.
Jon Bon Jovi
I think dating is all about role playing, and figuring out what you want and don’t want. You figure out more about yourself by meeting people. You’re like, “I’m not right for that person, but why am I not?” I think dating is a really interesting journey.
Shiri Appleby
Why should I want what’s good for me?’ Beatrice asked him, smiling. ‘Is that what you want for yourself – only what’s good for you?

When you’re in an economic downturn, what you want is to create jobs and economic growth. And the recipe isn’t Republican or Democrat. It’s low taxes, low spending, less regulation, free trade.
Nancy Pfotenhauer
Figure out for yourself what you want to be really good at, know that you’ll never really satisfy yourself that you’ve made it, and accept that that’s okay.
Robert A. Heinlein
Don’t let anyone, or any rejection, keep you from what you want.
Ashley Tisdale
You, and you alone, get to determine whether you are going to react positively about something or negatively about something – or, interestingly, have no reaction at all. Your emotions are entirely under your control. Your feelings are what you want them to be.
Neale Donald Walsch
Look what you can become in pursuit of what you want, and look out for what you become in the pursuit of what you want–don’t compromise!
Jim Rohn

Rick Bass
You try to give away what you want yourself.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Don’t let thoughts of me hold you back. Just do what you want to do. Otherwise, I might end up taking you with me, and that is the one thing I don’t want to do. I don’t want to interfere with your life.
Haruki Murakami
The first essence of journalism is to know what you want to know, the second, is to find out who will tell you.
John Gunther

Ned Colletti
Violence within the context of policing has a sense of control and power to it, whether it is dominance, getting what you want, or acting out of emotion. At the same time, it is not ultimately satisfying and [you are] trapped in the cycle.
Keanu Reeves
Ever since I was little, I’ve felt very comfortable on a set. The time is stressful – being creative under time constraints. But there is an excitement and energy that you only have a certain amount of time to get what you want.
Sofia Coppola
Love is not about what you want. It’s about finding happiness for the one you love.
Terry Goodkind

George Allen
Sometimes you have to be selfish to get what you want and move forward in life.
Kristen Stewart
My advice to an aspiring actor would be to never stop learning or working for what you want. Nothing comes easy, ever, if you want something, you have to work for it. By working for it I mean work on your craft, learn from people who have something to teach. It’s just like anything else, practice makes perfect.
James Lafferty
I’m very shy and awkward. I think the best thing is to embrace it. It’s about accepting who you are and what you want to become and knowing all that you’ve got to work with, whether it’s good or bad. My music was the only place I could be me for the longest time.
Hunter Hayes
Give what you want to receive. If you want happiness, make others happy.

Will Smith
Tell me what you want, and then I’ll put in what I want… after I’m done with my codependent providing for you, I’ll get a little for me too.
Andy Richter
Write your goals down in detail and read your list of goals every day. Some goals may entail a list of shorter goals. Losing a lot of weight, for example, should include mini-goals, such as 10-pound milestones. This will keep your subconscious mind focused on what you want step by step.
Jack Canfield
There are two things to aim at in life: first, to get what you want; and after that, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second.
Logan Pearsall Smith
The end is what you want and the means is how you get it.
Saul Alinsky

Henepola Gunaratana
Focus on yourself — do what you want, when you want, without having to consider anyone else’s agenda.
Lauren Weisberger
Competitiveness is really what it costs you per man-hour to get you what you want. In other words, there’s an education level that plays into the mix and so if it’s inexpensive to buy an hour of real good education in places like China versus the U.S., that factors in.
Ray Dalio
If you’re not sure what you want, then hold back from making plans or responding to invitations until you have a chance to think about it.
Carolyn Hax
Your true nature doesn’t come out. So the gods let you do what you want because free will would be compromised if they showed up at the White House saying, ‘Take us to your leader.
Tarsem Singh
Ask for what you want. Believe that you deserve it, and then allow Life to give it to you.
Louise Hay
Everyone wants to know what you want to work on and everyone wants to pitch you what they’re working on. And that’s just part of the process. And hopefully, at some point you find someone of like minds and you make a film.
Duncan Jones
You are what you want to become. Why search anymore? You are a wonderful manifestation. The whole universe has come together to make your existence possible. There is nothing that is not you. The kingdom of God, the Pure Land, nirvana, happiness, and liberation are all you.
Nhat Hanh
Either sin is with you, lying on your shoulders, or it is lying on Christ, the Lamb of God. Now if it is lying on your back, you are lost; but if it is resting on Christ, you are free, and you will be saved. Now choose what you want.
Martin Luther
I am what I am. I would tell you what you want to know if I could, for you have been kind to me. But I am a cat, and no cat anywhere ever gave anyone a straight answer.
Peter S. Beagle
When you talk about what you want and why you want it, there’s usually less resistance within you than when you talk about what you want and how you’re going to get it. When you pose questions you don’t have answers for, like how, where, when, who, it sets up a contradictory vibration that slows everything down.
Esther Hicks
You have to believe in what you do in order to get what you want.
Larry Ellison
A civil right is the most powerful right anybody can have. And people who oppose them are bigots. So you categorize what you want as a civil right, you immediately establish your opponent as a bunch of bigot hayseeds making it easier to defeat them.
Rush Limbaugh
I think we have a choice every single day in how we want to live our life. You wake up and you make your choice of what you want to do with your day that’s going to help you achieve your dream.
Hilary Swank
Be willing to dream, and imagine yourself becoming all that you wish to be. Keep in mind the basic axiom — all that now exists was once imagined. It follows then that what you want to exist for you in the future must now be imagined.
Wayne Dyer
If there is one thing that all players have in common it is that winning, competitive gene; the ability to overcome obstacles and fight for what you want from your career.
Andres Iniesta
You are affluent when you buy what you want, do what you wish and don’t give a thought to what it costs.
J. P. Morgan
If you just don’t have any idea what you want to do, the worst thing you can do is go to law school. If you can go to college, maybe it’s fine to have four years of fun and learn a little bit, that’s okay, but if you have to go two hundred thousand dollars in debt, that’s not something I would recommend.
Tucker Max
You tell yourself that you aren’t something or that you can’t be something, and you know what? It will become true. You have to decide who you are and what you can do and then go after what you want. Because believe me, no one is going to give it to you.
Elizabeth Scott
You should look ahead now and decide what you want to do with your lives. Fix clearly in your mind what you want to be one year from now, five years, ten years, and beyond. Write your goals and review them regularly. Keep them before you constantly, record your progress, and revise them as circumstances dictate.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
I’m an artist, and expressing myself in a sexual way, no matter how that changes throughout the years, is something that has always come naturally to me. At this point of my life, I’m 32 and I feel sexier than ever because you know what you want.
Christina Aguilera
Do not be ‘against’ anything. Being ‘against’ weakens you.
Be ‘for’ what you want. Being ‘for’ empowers you.
Wayne Dyer
If you keep thinking about what you want to do or what you hope will happen, you don’t do it, and it won’t happen.
Joe DiMaggio

Lance Bass
“What do I want?” is your question. And what you want is always changing with the flow. So go with the flow.
Leonard Jacobson
Both the liberal and the conservative are in agreement: it is all very well to let the people alone, but only if they do what you want them to do.
Bill Bonner
It’s hard to stay true to yourself and what you want in life when there are so many distractions and so much craziness going on around you.

Caitlin Moran
When you own something, you can call it what you want.
Frank Lucas
Drive, ego and cocksureness are all essential elements in terms of getting exactly what you want but losing everything you’ve got.
Dane Cook
Learn to ask for what you want. The worst people can do is not give you what you ask for which is precisely where you were before you asked.
Peter McWilliams
Build what you want to see in the world.
Jack Dorsey
I didn’t like it [computer] when I first began using it. Where it’s helped me a lot is in nonfiction which is a kind of different process. You’ve got research, you’ve got your notes, You can block out what you want to work on for the next 10 pages and put it in another file, and then you can kind of carve it into shape
Joan Didion
How you’re still always trapped. How your head is the cave, your eyes the cave mouth. How you live inside your head and only see what you want. How you only watch the shadows and make up your own meaning.
Chuck Palahniuk
I think girls are especially worried about being judged, and when you’re in high school, everything seems like a bigger deal than it is. As soon as you’re out, it feels like forever ago-zip-a-dee-doo-dah! So do what you want, and if people are going to judge you for it, who cares? You might not fit in, but that’s okay.
AnnaSophia Robb
If you can’t get what you want, you end up doing something else, just to get some relief. Just to keep from going crazy. Because when you’re sad enough, you look for ways to fill you up.
Laura Pritchett
If you want to become healthy, you have to surround yourself with a group of people that are getting healthy and you have to be connected to a community that is doing what you want to do.
Henry Cloud
Every choice before you represents the universe inviting you to remember who you are and what you want.
Alan Cohen
You’ll always have to fight for what you want. Definitely crossing over and being able to tackle these grittier parts was a challenge, but I feel like I’ve done it! It’s a whole new chapter.
Vanessa Hudgens
It’s a great feeling to do what you want and do what you love. Everyone should try it sometime if you’re not doing it already.
Jason Landry
You have to know what you want and keep going for it.
Taylor Hanson
Call it stubborn, call it ignorant, call it what you want, but I don’t think I have to join a particular faith or culture or creed or religion just to fit in.
Michael Rapaport
First, perseverance trumps talent. Second, do what you want to do, otherwise why bother? Third, be ethical; it might rub off on others. Fourth, don’t give up.
Jay Maisel
If you know what you want, you will recognize it when you see it.
Bill Cosby
If you have a past with which you feel dissatisfied, then forget it, now. Imagine a new story for your life and believe in it. Focus only on the moments when you achieved what you desired, and that strength will help you to get what you want.
Paulo Coelho
You believe what you want to believe
Tom Petty
….. your real work is to decide what you want and then to focus upon it. For it is through focusing upon what you want that you will attract it. That is the process of creating
Esther Hicks
Models, even male models – how small they’ve gotten! It looks great for clothes, but it’s not what you want in real life. Why do we have to keep looking at ourselves and measuring?
Demi Moore
You will stumble at time, forget what you want, fall headfirst into your old habits and beliefs. Fear not! Always remember to be patient and loving with yourself and others because that is what God does all the time.
Iyanla Vanzant
Here’s one of the great challenges of life. Being happy with what you have while in pursuit of what you want.
Jim Rohn
You can try on our suede underwear if you choose. Do what you want, but don’t step on my blue suede shoes.
Al Yankovic
Always remember that true happiness is not in getting what you want, but wanting what you already have. He who dies with the most toys is still dead. What is wanted is not the will to believe, but the will to find out, which is the exact opposite.
Bertrand Russell
Don’t use men to get what you want in life. Get it yourself.
Helen Gurley Brown
One of our big goals in search is to make search that really understands exactly what you want, understands everything in the world. As computer scientists, we call that artificial intelligence.
Larry Page
Start leaving what you want to leave. Your future is waiting.
Danielle LaPorte
Basically what you want in any profession – I would say the same thing if I were a lawyer or a doctor – is you want bright undergraduates to look at your profession as something they would be interested in getting into.
Louis Menand
It’s so wonderful and creative to go in and tell the wardrobe department what you want to wear and how you want your hair to look. That’s great, for an actor. The actors get to do more than they would, normally.
Jim Piddock
It’s weird to try to write lyrics for somebody else. They can’t really get behind what you’re saying or what you want them to say because they didn’t experience it.
Wes Borland
For if you know what you want, and will be content with it, you can be trusted. But if you do not know, your desires are limitless and no one can tell how to deal with you. Nothing satisfies an individual incapable of enjoyment.
Alan Watts
Remember your dreams and fight for them. You must know what you want from life. There is just one thing that makes your dream become impossible: the fear of failure.
Paulo Coelho
Being frustrated is disagreeable, but the real disasters of life begin when you get what you want.
Irving Kristol
Do what you want as long as its paying off for you. But once its become a liability, then something is wrong and you better find out what it is.
Anton Szandor LaVey
Say what you want without saying it yourself: quote. Very useful, this, sometimes lovely, and versatile, too: big thoughts in small pieces, neatly wrapped and bundled in bulk, in different flavors for different tastes.
Willis Regier
I don’t talk to anybody about my personal life, and maybe that perpetuates it, too. But it’s really important to own what you want to own and keep it to yourself.
Kristen Stewart
At last some time for pleasure trips
And do what you want to do
The time to just take your time
It’s toodle-oo to time that flew
Those plan A’s and B’s
Coming down of that dusty shelf;
it’s your time now just for you
To do things for your self.
John Walter Bratton
You must do what you want.
Anthony Horowitz
The informing idea of what you want to say and do, that’s what will take you from film school to professional – the idea. That’s what is original to you.
William Friedkin
I think it’s really important to do what you want to do because in the long-run it’s your career, you want everything to go well and you want to be happy with what you’re doing. It was really important for me to take control of my career.
Cher Lloyd
I always knew I wanted to be an actor, certainly from the age of eight or nine. I think when you know what you want to do, you’re very lucky because you’ve got a focus.
Ashley Jensen
I know what you want. It is very stupid of you, but you shall have your way, and it will bring you to sorrow, my pretty princess. – The sea witch.
Hans Christian Andersen
When your life is changed by Jesus, you are a new creature. God not only changes what you do, He also changes what you want to do.
Ravi Zacharias
Addictive behavior is kind of the inverse of procrastination: procrastination is about not being able to do what you want to do, addiction about not being able to not do what you don’t want to do (drink, use drugs, etc.)
James Surowiecki
You want what you want, whether or not you think you can have it.
Robert Fritz
I think children need to be nurtured for what they are as opposed to what you want them to be. I think that’s when those ideas come into your head of like, What should I feel in this moment? It’s because someone told you, “Your instinct was incorrect.” And you’re like, Why? Why is that wrong?
Tyler Blackburn
People tell me, “You’re such an optimist”. Am I an optimist? An optimist says the glass is half full. A pessimist says the glass is half empty. A survivalist is practical. He says, “Call it what you want, but just fill the glass.” I believe in filling the glass.
Louis Zamperini
You continue to change your approach until you achieve what you want using whatever life gives you along the way.
Tony Robbins
You don’t become what you want, you become what you believe.
Oprah Winfrey
With stand-up, you can be as freeform as you want to be. You can say what you want, how you want, at any moment without constraint.
Michael Ian Black
What you want can be yours. But you must first know what it is you want.
Libba Bray
The ultimate search engine… would understand exactly what you mean and give back exactly what you want.
Larry Page
That’s what you want: you want projects that you fall in love with. I don’t think you pick your projects; you fall in love with them.
Morten Tyldum
It could be my downfall, but I don’t think it is – Hollywood is run on perception, and if you stray off the path of what you want to do with your career, it’s suicide.
Charlie Hunnam
I think that I would like to have that kind of a budget [hundreds millions dollars] and I think the reasons for it are it gives you more time and it gives you the opportunity to be more ambitious with what you want to do with the camera and also how a scene works. I wouldn’t want to direct those kinds of scripts.
Duncan Jones
Gratitude is a powerful process for shifting your energy and bringing more of what you want into your life. Be grateful for what you already have, and you will attract more good things.
Rhonda Byrne
And yes, to answer you seriously, I am beginning to be… well, not bored, but tempted; afraid, but tempted. When you’ve been in pain for a long time, when you wake up every morning with a rising sense of hysteria, then boredom is what you want, marathon sleeps, a silence in yourself.
Truman Capote
Establishing and maintaining clarity for yourself and what you want is the starting point for success. Thus, maintaining extraordinary clarity is necessary to achieve extraordinary success. The problem is that most people maintain a mediocre level of clarity, which inevitably leads to a mediocre level of success.
Hal Elrod
The big thing is that you know what you want.
Earl Nightingale
By and large, life will give you what you deserve and it doesn’t give a damn what you like. So it is up to you to take full responsibility to connect what you want with what you need to do to get it, and then to do those things.
Ray Dalio
I want collaboration, but if they don’t have a plan or their vision isn’t clear, it’s nerve-wracking. So, someone that’s very sure of the vision is what you want, most of all.
Naomi Watts
You,” Said Dr. Yavitch, “are a middle-road liberal, and you haven’t the slightest idea what you want. I, being a revolutionist, know exactly what I want — and what I want now is a drink.
Sinclair Lewis
My advice to women in general: Even if you’re doing a nine-to-five job, treat yourself like a boss. Not arrogant, but be sure of what you want – and don’t allow people to run anything for you without your knowledge.
Nicki Minaj
Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don’t.
Mary Schmich
As much as you know it, and you know the method, you can pretty much do what you want. No idea is going to be shot down. You just put it in the garbage later. You have to say the lines in many different ways. So they have a lot of material to work.
Antonio Banderas
